Tan is in
Lady of Sun offers clients sunless tanning products and applications—such as airbrush tanning to help them maintain a bronze glow without damaging their skin with harmful UV rays. A tanned glow is a sought after look that everyone from Hollywood to here in Cincinnati has a desire for. But how did it start?
In the past tanned skin was looked at as a result of a hard labor outdoor jobs, such as farming. Cultures throughout the world have different views on what skin color is the most desirable. For instance, women in the US, Europe and most of south america have a deeper desire for a tanned look. However, most women in the Asian cultures place a high value on a more fair look.
At one time, women who had very fair skin and a porcelain look indicated they could afford not to work in the fields or in hard labor jobs.
Tanned Skin Becomes Popular
Most people in the fashion and beauty world believe this trend in color was brought on by French Designer, Coco Chanel who valued a bronze glow. The look of being tan changed from a look of hard work, to a new luxury look! It made a statement of being able to afford vacations and holidays instead of working. If you had a glow, then must have gone somewhere exotic to get it!
The sunless tanning market began to grow in the 1950s. The first self-tanner, Man-Tan, was introduced in 1959 and UV tanning beds began to appear in the United States in 1978. By the 1980s and 90s, both bottle and bed-based tans became firmly established practices that allowed tanning devotees to get—and maintain—the bronzed skin they desired.
